Clara van Wel is an award-winning musician, comedian, and writer known for their witty and thoughtful storytelling. From Sunday mornings at the Farmers’ Market to national television, they have captivated audiences for more than a decade. These days, Clara gigs regularly around Te Whanganui-a-Tara as a solo artist and with their alt-pop band Rocket Berry.

Unable to decide if they want to be listened to, laughed at, or left alone to work on their “novel”, Clara refuses to commit to a single medium, but their passion for the craft of songwriting endures. Dynamic, reflective, and lyrically astute, their music lends a theatrical slant to the confessional intimacy of folk. Previous praise includes: “not as good as Avril Lavigne” and “you look like the one in the boy band who reads”. They look forward to hearing your review.

"a soloist capable of hitting every possible mark "
